Audi R8 facelift, horsepower bump, and dual clutch transmission confirmed
You may remember that is August we reported that the R8 would be getting a facelift. The German publication Auto Motor Und Sport was able to confirm the changes. The 4.2 liter V8 will be bumped to 450 horsepower and the V10 model will be going up to 560 horsepower. The 6-speed R-tronic will be ditched for a 7 speed dual clutch. Exterior changes to the lights should complete the facelift. Makes those expensive and limited edition GT models seem pointless, doesn't it?
